Happy Monday sweet friends. I haven’t written to you in a very long time, and I have honestly just dropped the ball..
I didn’t just drop it. I threw it and ran! I don’t know if you have had a similar situation happen to you, but I felt so overwhelmed and I couldn’t help it. I was getting tired. I was burdening myself with other people goals, dreams, and eventually, I burnt myself out.
I was like a bag of bones that knew the calling on my life but felt like it was too big so I decided to try what others were doing…
I’m not sure if you feel that way at all, but SERIOUSLY it is so exhausting. We were all made so differently and uniquely that it’s like going against the current. You know those movies where the character relives one day of their life over and over again and they are trying to get out and get help? (Most of these are scary so don’t go see them haha! Pretty sure there’s one out now that’s an evil thriller…) Besides the point, that is what I felt like I was living.
And I see SOOO many women doing the same thing!! Moms who give up on their dream, and talk themselves into thinking this is it for them. Young college girls who are drowning in drama and thirsting for purpose…I see you.
“I crave to find out who God has called me to be.” Well, sister, I think we need to start craving to be obedient and fearless. Then we will see that our purpose and our true selves come out.
This is what I have been struggling with. I have learned this over the years:
Struggling with something takes grit, bravery, and perseverance. You can either see there is an issue, or see that you are unhappy and allow bitterness and sadness to overcome you…
You can be brave press into the issue head first. It’s a yucky and difficult place to be, and it can be a process. It’s like one day you could say, “I’M OUT!! I DID IT!!” And then the very next moment you fall down again. Haha! It’s a sad thing to say, but IT’S TRUE.
Lesson of the day: Please stop trying to be like everyone else. You deserve so much better than that. You are precious and unique and I know it’s scary, but you need to be yourself!!
This whole week, I am walking in what I am saying to you all…
I feel like for such a long time I am trying to pursue a Brittany that is not who I am. Someone who needs to post and go live all the time. Someone who needs to appeal to brands, and all types of women.
I realize, I just want to help the people who want help. I am as messy as the next gal, and all I want and need to do is to create and point to the sky. (Insert all of the praise hands. LOL)
Who’s with me?
Be on the look out this week for some videos as I push and pray for breakthrough for Miss Beautymark. I had a friend who when I asked her for prayer, she had a vision of me in basically a glass box. And I was more than capable of breaking it, but I didn’t.
I don’t know about you, but I am tired of being in that box. Let’s break out together.
Until next time,
